Sin Pays Its Wages

Sin Pays Its Wages

Sin pays its wages
And it pays them to the max
For the wages of sin is death
And that's a biblical fact
The Bible has the answer
For any question that you may have
Especially in regards to death
And to a life ...after the grave!

This should be of grave concern
For people die every day
Showing this prophetic statement of truth
As to why death comes our way
But hallelujah there was One
Who to death was not beholden
For He had no wages of sin to be paid
There was no sin of Him to be spoken

Which of you convicteth me of sin?
Were the very words of the Saviour...
And not one tongue could offer up a word
What a testimony to His life here!
He...who...Himself gives life
Praise God when we're born again
And clothes us with a Spiritual nature
That we forever may live with Him

You know you're going to die
That's a guarenteed appointment
But before you are ready to leave this world
May you be blessed with a Spiritual ointment
There's a healing balm in Gilead
The Son can set you free
Repent of the sin in your life today
And enjoy Heaven's liberty!

Repent of the sin in your life today
And enjoy Heaven's liberty!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
